This week's book of the week selection comes from photographer and photobook historian Martin Parr. A few weeks ago Parr got in touch with us to share Eamonn Doyle's i, and agreed to let us share it with you as Book of the Week.

"Street photography is one of the most difficult genres to find a new vision within. From time to time a photographer finds a voice and makes an original contribution to this development, and often a book celebrates that achievement. I am thinking of the likes of Bruce Gilden's Facing New York and Philip-Lorca diCorcia's MOMA book. So when this book by Eamonn Doyle arrived at my doorstep I was quite taken aback. This unknown photographer had shot on the streets of Dublin, often from behind the subjects, and produced a most lyrical set of photographs and a wonderful book. Self-published, with an edition of 750, it has to be one of this year's sleepers as this compelling contribution to street photography makes its mark."—Martin Parr
